with health care. but people in obama care, they can't go to the best hospitals. they're not going to be able to see as many doctors as they want. and they're going to see rationed care and longer lines. but zeke emanuel admitted if you're willing to pay more, you can get broader options, you can maybe go abroad and have medicine around the world. the purpose was to bridge the gap. and obama care only makes it even wider. as you mentioned, larry, with the co-pays going up, it's even worse -- >> we're going to play that zeke emanuel tape in a few minutes. chris kofinis, because i admire and respect you and i have so much affection for you, i want to give you a little piece of free political advice. get this guy zeke emanuel off the air. >> absolutely! >> this guy -- he's been on this show. either he lied or he was just ignorant. the guy is supposed to be a smart guy. teaches school at the university of pennsylvania. get him out of there because every time he shows up and makes the statements that he makes, this is like the democratic party dying of 1,000 cuts. chris, can you write that in, get

, the premium for health -- obama care or paying your debt? >> well, i'd say that may not be the best way to look at it right now. when people talk about obama care they forget about all the positives. the fact that right now for me in college i'm not paying any higher premium. i'm allowed to stay on my parents' health insurance until i'm 26 because of obama care. when i end up finding my own plan which i do plan on doing once i turn 26, i will not be denied for any pre-existing conditions, i'm not going to be denied because i'm a woman, i won't pay any higher charges. i think those are very important things to focus on but back to your point about student loan debt, i don't necessarily see it as a trade-off that way because i know a lot of people will not be able to be covered because of their parents because they're able to stay with them until they're 26 but with student loan, that's something that's tackled in a separate way but putting the two together -- >> i don't know, charlie, it's just expenses. you all have expenses, i got expenses, and i'm just trying to figure out how this is

. let's preserve freedom and choice and health care. fine, keep the obama care health plans in place. give those as an option for individuals. but we should also give individuals the freedom to choose a plan that doesn't have the mandate of coverages because that is what is driving up the cost. >> it doesn't work. >> it's not going to work anyway. but if you want to set this up as an insurance pool which means you're paying insurance and you're a man and you don't want to have paternity coverage, you've got to pay it too. that's the way it works out. and i'm not arguing whether this should have been done or not, that's the only way it works. >> it's not working out. >> but that's -- what you're talking about is -- >> does anybody believe the cost curve has been bent down? i mean -- >> there are arguments. i'm not picking up the flag and waving with this, but if you have peter orszag or somebody else come in, they will say, yes, it will bend. >> it is also because of what was happening with things like health savings accounts and higher deductible plans, which is really where the move

, president obama signed into law the much-debated health care reform legislation. the intent of the law is to slow the growth of medicare expenses, but none of the end-of-life issues raised in our story are addressed in the new law. in fact, the new legislation actually reduces medicare payments for hospice programs which studies have shown are very cost-efficient. our next story involves a widely used family of chemicals known as phthalates, which may be affecting our health and are found in everyday items like shower curtains, shampoos, perfumes, and even children's toys. in fact, our exposure to phthalates is so ubiquitous, we all have traces of the chemical in our bodies. even though phthalates have been used since the 1920s, a recent group of studies has shown that the chemical disrupts hormone activity and may be causing a slow and steady demasculinizing of men. and in 2009, congress followed europe's lead and banned certain phthalates for use in children's toys. congress came under pressure to act because of a study by dr. shanna swan, an epidemiologist at the university of roche

like obama care is failing so badly that a bailout is already in the works for the nation's biggest health insurance companies. and that's because of what many are calling the perfect storm. not enough young people enrolling, too many older and sicker people signing up, also there are too many errors in the reporting back end of the health care.gov website. and today, they admitted to the appallingly big error rate. and 65% oppose a rescue for the health insurance industry. you know what, folks. one big bank bailout five yearers ago more than enough, thanks very much. here is independent senior policy analyst hadley heath and with us democratic strategist tracy sefl, lenwood brooks, policy director for public notice and cnbc contributor james pethokoukis of the american enterprise institute. good evening. heather, let me -- let me begin with you. what is up with this? what are they calling it? a corridor. they're calling it a corridor of assistance for the insurance companies. it sounds like a bailout to me. i don't like it one bit. you tell me what's going on here. >> well, the mos
